OK i made this because some people felt that Suzhou-Alex's guide was a bit unclear (no offense to you at all if youre reading this btw)
anybody that does not understand/cant figure out for the life of them how to fix their WoW, here it is:
get an english client or whatever language you want it to be in. patch
it all the way up to 3.1.3, and no further.be sure to back up your folder just in case.
should anything go wrong.
now download http://www.filefront.com/14167869/WOW_chinese_rootfiles.rar
that is not a folder (ie wow.exe repair.exe wowerror
unicows... whatever.) in the WoW folder.
now you just have a wow folder with more folders in it. nothing but
. extract the file you just downloaded into your WoW folder. its all the files you just deleted but like from the CWOW game. then go into the Data folder and then the enUS (or DE or GB or whatever your language it) folder. you should see all these .MPQ files, like expansion-locale-enUS.MPQ and patch-enUS-2.MPQ and many more. change every enUS to enCN. so expansion-locale-enUS
is now expansion-locale-enCN
and so forth. also change the folder name (the enUS folder in the Data folder) to enCN. then change the realmlist. paste this exactly
set realmlist cn.logon.warcraftchina.com
set patchlist cn.version.warcraftchina.com
set realmlistbn ""
set portal cn
then download and extract http://www.filefront.com/14164105/Data.zip
Now check your World of Warcraft \Data\ folder for a file called “patch-e.MPQ” (which is around 65KB) and inside the enCN folder for a file called “patch-enCN-3.MPQ” (which is around 66KB).
download and extract http://www.filefront.com/14163759/SimpLauncher_3_1_3.rar
You have to start the game with this skeleton.exe file.
When you start this file, a little window pops up. there is an upper
and lower section. In the top section, tick the top left option. This
lets you play on Chinese servers. Push the big button and the game
also, in case:
Download the file Fonts.rar from the following link here on this webpage.http://wow-in-chinese.forum2jeux.com/technical-support-f2/chinese-font-link-updated-t800.htm
Extract this folder to your World of Warcraft folder.
Inside the folder “Fonts” must be now the following files inside:
